It's Saturday!

I cannot begin to tell you how excited we are that College Football begins today for our team, GO GATORS!!! The game starts in 30 mins, and we are ready;) Here is a quick recap of our shopping adventure from yesterday for your reading enjoyment, LOL:)

I did pretty good at the grocery store yesterday. Especially considering I discovered I had a blinker and taillight out on the car on the way (when a man flipped out and started screaming at Aaron and I on the road because he couldn't see my blinker on when I was turning. I had no idea it was out, but as soon as traffic cleared I sped away, LOL!) and I worked those into my list.

The people behind me in the line at Walmart weren't all that happy to see all of those coupons and circulars for other stores for price matching, but it saved me a significant amount.

Our first stop was Walgreens to get the free after rewards deals. They were out of everything but the carmex, so we got just that for $2 with a $2RR back, so it was FREE! Then I got rainchecks for the other items.

Then we headed to Walmart for the majority of items. I do prefer Homeland, but pretty much only for meat and sale items with double coupons. If it is a do not double coupon I typically get the item at Walmart. Several other stores around had some good deals also, but not enough to drive all the way there, so I just price matched at Walmart.

Then to CVS to get milk (cheaper than Walmart, and the 2 gallons met the Buy 3 gallons, get $3 ECB deal.) Had a $4 off $20 purchase coupon, so we got enough ECB items to meet that. I spent $7 in ECB and got $8 back. $0.78 spent out of pocket.

At this point we had to get the two youngest from school and then stop off at home and put away the frozen/refrigerated items, and then head back out to Homeland.

Here we got some meat with the $2 RRR meat coupon, and then just matched up some sale/coupon items such as the Libby's fruit and veggies $2/1 and $3/1 respectively, and some Sara Lee bread for $0.50 per loaf after my coupon;)

I hope you all had a great week of shopping as well. Today you can find me hopping at ”Debbie

Thanks so much for stopping by. I am your newest follower. I really enjoy your posts. Didn't know if you knew this, but there aren't any coupons scheduled to be in Sunday's paper because it is a holiday weekend. There are supposed to be three the following week, though so that might be a better time to buy extra papers.
